Mouse On Mars' rolodex fires out an extended list of electronica and pop practitioners including Bon Iver's Justin Vernon, The National's Aaron and Bryce Dessner, Beirut's Zach Condon, Spank Rock, Sam Amidon and many more for the multitiered new album, Dimensional People.
No stranger to opening the doors of the studio to guests, Mouse On Mars most famously joined forces with The Fall's Mark E. Smith for a number of collaborations under the aptly titled Von Südenfed project some 11 years ago. Since then they have continuously reshaped their playful and inventive electronic sound with a string of releases for Monkeytown, before returning to Thrill Jockey, the label who released their seminal albums as Radical Connector (2004), Idiology (2001), and Niun Niggung (2000).
Having most recently contributed to The National's Grammy award-winning album ‘Sleep Well Beast’ Dimensional People expands on the pairs recent research into spatial composition using object-based mixing technology playing with the possibilities of sonic design (4D Sound) and collective musicianship. The resulting album expresses itself as a dynamic 50-piece orchestra, telling a story in sound, one that we are sure fans of the group are going to become very familiar with, resulting in what is being described as their most inventive album to date, Dimensional People.
